by lying to me
you taught me that your word is meaningless
and that i should wait for the proof
of anything you say

by ignoring me the rest of the week
you taught me that you consider my sexuality worthless
and that i should wait for the proof
that you aren't gay

i get more from you
when i give less to you
and hear more from you
when i speak less to you

when i am open
you don't step inside
and when i am closed
you search for the key

you gave me the fork and knife to eat you
you gave me the cards to cheat you
paved the path for me to drive you
you taught me how to treat you
